About Shannin


Bio

I have a PhD in biology from the University of Iowa and Bachelor's degree in Microbiology from the University of South Florida. Biology-related topics are where I would be most useful as a tutor, but I also have experience with upper-level math, chemistry, and physics. I have taught discussion sections of Cell Biology and lab sections of Major's Biology, Animal Behavior, and Evolution. I have also worked behind the scenes in many other college-level courses from Anatomy to Microbiology....

I have a PhD in biology from the University of Iowa and Bachelor's degree in Microbiology from the University of South Florida. Biology-related topics are where I would be most useful as a tutor, but I also have experience with upper-level math, chemistry, and physics. I have taught discussion sections of Cell Biology and lab sections of Major's Biology, Animal Behavior, and Evolution. I have also worked behind the scenes in many other college-level courses from Anatomy to Microbiology.

Just for good measure, I have younger nieces, nephews, and cousins that I have helped with many subjects from elementary through college level.

Helping students grasp difficult concepts is one of my favorite things. If you need help with any biology-related topic and genuinely want to understand the information you're stuffing in your head I would be happy to help with that.

Genetics

I've taken graduate level genetics courses and worked in a lab that used yeast to do very cool genetic experiments in the course of their studies on the genes involved in meiosis.

Zoology

I have taught courses on Animal Behavior and taken numerous biology courses that would fall under the Zoology subheading. In particular, I've taken courses on Population Genetics that exposed me to many Zoology-specific topics.

She knows her stuff really well

She taught me the basics of certain aspects of genetics like RNA Transcription and Mendelian Inheritance. I recommend Shannin to any student struggling with genetics!
